Post Office Expects To Save Thousands Of Jobs Without Sat. Service
It's a plan to save two billion dollars a year...but many customers of the postal service don't like the plan.
The post office has announced it will end most Saturday mail delivery this summer. U-S-P-S spokesman Pete Nowacki in Minneapolis says the effect on La Crosse area post offices has not been calculated, but around the U.S., it could save more than 20,000 jobs.
Positions the postal service hopes it won't have to eliminate, if the money can be saved. A decline in 'snail mail' usage and the expense of a federally-mandated pension plan have been cited as reasons for the service cutback.
